Online tributes for Irishman

The news of the possible death of Irishman Michael Dwyer has spread like wildfire. And people have been logging onto his facebook profile in order to find out more. The Irish Times has an article online that announces the Death of the 24 year old, but it has gotten all of its information from his social networking site. It seems ridiculous that people have logged on to find out more about the young man.

It is obvious that their is no such thing as privacy anymore. The Irish times lists his date of birth, his relationship status, his interests, information all taken from his personal facebook profile, even the photo provided has been taken from his Bebo profile. It gets even worse, as people have begun to write comments to the victim, mourning his loss.

In an age where people depend on the internet for their information it seems that it has been taken a step too far.
